Appears to be the crossing of ACL's OLD MAIN LINE at
Petersburg.  The Cannonballs (with N&W crews) used the
Old Main Line Petersburg to North Dunlop, ACL's double
track route to the James River, and RF&P to Richmond's
Broad Street Station.  Before abandonment, the Old Main
Line climbed a hill, ran down the center of Washington St.
for several blocks and reconnected with the present align-
ment just north of the I-85 overhead bridge.  Harry Bundy
